Once upon a time, preschool storytimes were an integral part of my weekday routine as a stay-at-home mom with toddlers and preschoolers.
This post is brought to you by our partner Red Balloon Bookshop! With a cozy shop, a sweet selection of books, and lots of fun activities, they are one of the best indy shops in the Twin Cities!
The time we spent at bookstores, libraries and other tot spots around town made up a big piece of our social life. We’d see familiar faces, discover new stories, and I would often take away valuable nuggets of parenting advice. The list below of toddler and preschool story times are hosted at highly kid-friendly venues around the Twin Cities. And, with a couple noted exceptions, each program is completely free entertainment for your young ones. (These times were verified and updated on 11/3/18).
At the end of the school day, we are exhausted. And usually, we have that mandatory 20 minutes reading homework left to do. Joy has come up with some great ways to be a rockstar parent in the reading homework department.
